>The holiday season is over! I don’t count New Year’s Eve as part of the holiday season because I don’t really celebrate it. I often try to, but it seems like it gets thwarted every time. Last year, we were supposed to celebrate at Busch Gardens with Sadia, but Meg’s flight was delayed and we got there really late. It was an incredibly special night for my future husband and me anyway, but New Years wasn’t a big deal.
This year, Meg is in Seattle. My New Year’s Eve date from last year is now my husband. Jack was born. Every single part of my life has changed. If you think about it, New Years Eve of last year really was the dawn of a new era for me.
I don’t have resolutions. I think they are ridiculous. I do have some hopes for this coming year though. I hope that the seeds that we planted this year will continue to be nurtured into something that will be enjoyed later (and I’m not talking about the seeds from my dead tomato plant.) I hope that the decisions I made throughout the year will continue to be the right decisions. I hope that all of my friends will stay healthy or get healthier.
I hope you have a fun and safe New Year’s Eve. Have a drink for me. Use a designated driver or call a cab if you need one. (If you have to ask yourself if you need a ride, you do.) Don’t forget to stake out your midnight kiss ahead of time and be in position when the ball drops. I’ll be living la vida loca at home most likely.
